TSpaces - Intelligent Connectionware

What is TSpaces?
  TSpaces is the support for software communication, like a brigde, it connects business in the information highway

TSpaces is network middleware for the new age of ubiquitous computing. A succinct description of TSpaces would be, a network communication buffer with database capabilities. It enables communication between applications and devices in a network of heterogeneous computers and operating systems. TSpaces provides group communication services, database services, URL-based file transfer services, and event notification services. It is implemented in the Java programming language and thus it automatically possesses network ubiquity through platform independence, as well as a standard type representation for all datatypes.

The TSpaces system is appropriate for any application that has distribution or data storage requirements. It can perform many of the duties of a relational database system without imposing an overly restrictive (and primitive) type system, a rigid schema, a clumsy user interface or a severe runtime memory requirement. In a sense, it is a database system for the common everyday computing device---one that doesn't generate complex SQL queries, but one that needs reliable storage that is network accessible.
